Have you accepted midlife myths?
It occurred to me that there are some common midlife myths accepted as truth. What if they were simply not true?
First, what thoughts do you actually have about midlife and aging? Gathering your thoughts in a journal by jotting down all the thoughts that you have about midlife.
Next, take a look at the thoughts. Do you like the thoughts? Are they true? Where have these thought and ideas come from?
It is widely believed that our bodies are not separated from our thoughts or emotions. This is why I preach Self-Aware is the first step to Self-Care. It is time to let go of toxic beliefs. Then frame, or reframe, what your idea of midlife is and create it!
Three myths to bust in order to believe your best years are ahead
1. Midlife means the beginning of a loosing battle with well being.
In her book Goddesses Never Age, Christiane Northrup, M.D. confirms, “physical deterioration occurs in large part because of the accumulation of toxins, which results in cellular deterioration and damage along with tissue and organ breakdown.”
Yet, she also offers that the body is in a constant state of reinvention. “You do not have to have the same physical body you had just a few years ago. Every cell has been replaced.”
I am living proof of this! In 2017 I decided to question the idea that our bodies have to fall apart in midlife. I spent three years removing toxins from my diet and home. In 2019 I learned to manage my mind. Thanks to this work, I am not the same person I was back then.
You can achieve wellness at any age. Your best years are ahead.
2. An empty nest is boring and lonely
An empty nest isn’t lonely because I am there.
Typically women spend there lives between 20 and 40 tending to their families. Without giving it a second thought, their schedule is dictated by work and family. When their little birdies fly the coop, there is naturally a void to fill.
Although change is rarely popular, a new routine emerges from the quiet house. At this point in life, you are ready to make decisions about what your future will look like?
Unfortunately, “we believe that if something great was going to happen, it would have happened when we were 20 or 30, right? It would have happened when we were in college or when we were going to school or whatever. That’s when all the amazing things happen. But what if we’re totally wrong about that?” ~Brooke Castillo
There are several ways to look at an empty nest. What if you decide to enjoy your own company and believe your best years are ahead?
3. Time is running out with little options
Why focus on what can’t be done?
I intend to bust this myth wide open!!!! There have been too many examples of successful people who achieved greatness after the age of 40. Success leaves clues. Studying their stories encourages me to explore my own.
Time will run out if you indulge in self depravation. Midlife is the time to invest in childhood dreams, ideas that have took a back seat to the demands of family and what your soul longs to teach you.
What if you made each day count and believe the best years are ahead?
I am sure you’ve created a few midlife myths of your own.
Are you at the crossroads, at a point in life when you are ready to make decisions about what your future will look like?
